Old Toronto Store Fronts

Toronto Store Front

These colourful storefronts located in Toronto’s downtown east provide a fascinating glimpse back in time.  As Toronto’s inner city neighbourhoods continue to gentrify these unique storefronts will gradually vanish from the street, likely to be replaced by more generic facades. The fascia sign for the Acadia Book Store states that the store was established in 1931!  A small part of Toronto’s history for all still to enjoy.
